Quirky historic barn conversion sleeping 22, ideal for large celebrations and ceremonies near Lavenham

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Tudor Barn, Lavenham, Sudbury, Suffolk, sleeps 10-22 in 4 bedrooms.

.. a friend had described the barn but we were all completely blown away when we arrived..

Beautiful, comfortable, spacious, unusual and historic Tudor Barn, in unspoilt surroundings on an environmentally-friendly farm. Reunions and gatherings for friends, families, cyclists, walkers, bird watchers, historians, small rural wedding celebrations, civilised hen parties; business colleagues can bond, friends can talk, walk, run, hug trees, pond dip, paint, sing, celebrate, dress up in costume, eat and be merry.

Air, ancient, atmosphere, buttercups, bantams, bookshelves, beams, banquets, beetles, beds of local oak. Eggs, explore, exciting. Hedgerows, hares, hazel. Poppies, plums, puffballs. Wacky, wild, walls, wine, woodpeckers, wood burner, whirligigs.

The 16th century aisled barn is huge, with flexible living space for large groups – room to be together - and apart. A fenced herb garden for barbecues, croquet, sunbathing on rugs, and through the garden wall, tennis. Beyond, 500 acres of farmland to roam - meadows, woodland, ponds and Norman Castle earthworks.

Comfortable beds in 3 doubles, 3 sofa beds in sitting room and 1 huge bedroom, in Tudor style in the huge open plan barn for 22 plus. Additional rooms in b&b farmhouse on bed only basis and completely separate bunkhouse down the track (no shared facilities), takes total accommodation available to 50 plus. Unsuitable for really rowdy groups.

Barn peacefully situated down a long farm drive, surrounded by meadows, hedges, ponds and yet more ancient listed barns (said to be one of the finest preserved 17th century farmyards in the country) next to the beautiful hall farmhouse.

The owners are unashamedly "green" - you'll be asked to recycle, compost, turn off lights, consider public transport options, appreciate local produce, enjoy taking to the bicycle and experiment going slow! And for every towel you bring yourselves, £1 is donated to Suffolk Wildlife Trust towards the purchase of local nature reserves.

Historic Lavenham, Constable Country, Suffolk coast, antique shops, beaches, jazz, nature reserves, winding lanes, friendly pubs - all within easy reach.
